Vietnam CEO Forum refreshes strategy approaches

The Vietnam CEO Forum 2014 ‘New Game – What Moves’ reinvigorated business strategies and outlined the opportunities and risks of global integration, bringing together chief executive officers, economists and policy-makers to brainstorm ideas.

Opened on September 24 in Ho Chi Minh City, the one-day event looked at viable strategies for finance, markets and human resources in great depth.

As the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) - a common platform for the region’s business circles - will be established in late 2015, Vietnamese firms are expected to enhance their operations in a bid to become more competitive.

Global changes bear opportunities and challenges, but what mattered was how to make the most out of each trend, Chairman of the FPT Board of Directors Truong Gia Binh said.

Economists said the birth of the AEC would deal a “strategic blow” to domestic enterprises, forcing them to devise long-term and strategic business plans.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam and economist Pham Chi Lan were amongst the key-note speakers.

The annual event was organised by the municipal Young Business People Association, Saigon Entrepreneurs Club, 2030 Businessmen Club, Leading Business Club and the Business Association of Vietnamese High-Quality Goods.
